Nickelodeon Australia Announces Inaugural 'Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest'


Nickelodeon Australia has announced the first-ever Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest, a brand new immersive experience guaranteed to be the event of the year, where kids will #OWNTHEFOAM!

Designed just for kids aged 5-12 years and modelled off the highly successful and hugely popular 5k Foam Fest, this interactive, physically charged event will have kids challenging themselves to conquer the 10 Nickelodeon branded obstacles and take on the tons of FOAM, mayhem and madness in between, all across a 1K course. Every kid that finishes will be presented with a medal on the podium, all while being cheered along by their friends and family.

Kids will be able to get bouncy on SpongeBob SquarePants’ BouncyBottom, conquer the Turtley awesome Rise of the Ninja before taking on The Thundermans’ Nowhere to Slide! The Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest is an epic family experience where the kids rule the course and #OWNTHEFOAM!

When kids take on the incredible custom course, they should expect the unexpected! Their inner SpongeBob SquarePants could appear with a splash of yellow, perhaps a tinge of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle green, what about FOAM? We could even work on enhancing your complexion with some MUD? However kids conquer the course, it will be epic!

After the run kids can hang out in the festival area with their families and friends, grab something refreshing like a SLIME slurpee and a bite to eat, and chill to cool tunes.

All obstacles are optional. If someone is feeling a little nervous about being able to complete an obstacle, no worries! Staff and volunteers are placed throughout the course and they are ready to leap into action and help them through an obstacle. Or, if a child or parent feels that they shouldn’t do an obstacle for any reason, Nickelodeon's staff will help them around it.

The course can take anywhere from 10-30 minutes to complete based on a child's age, ability and speed.

A parent/guardian or caregiver must accompany any kids participating in the Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest course and be onsite to supervise throughout the day. No parents will be allowed inside the course. This is a kids only zone.

Nickelodeon Hits A FOAM Run.

Calling All Kids To #OWNTHEFOAM.

Are your kids pros at making a soapy mess in the bathroom? Can they hold their balance as they sprint across the hall with wet feet? Think they have what it takes to #OWNTHEFOAM?

From the creators of iconic The 5K Foam Fest comes its offspring, the Nickelodeon 1K Foam Fest: Australia’s first ever FOAM-filled fun run, where kids rule the course.

Touring around the country and designed for kids aged 5 to 12, the interactive and physically charged course features 10 epic Nickelodeon obstacles, allowing kids to take in the mayhem and madness, alongside their favourite TV icons.

Watch them bounce through SpongeBob’s BouncyBottom; endure mud, FOAM and secret plutonium ooze on Henry Danger’s The Beginning of the End; unleash their inner Ninja on the Roof Top Run; and disappear down The Thundermans’ Nowhere to Slide!, before sprinting to the FOAMY Finish!

Wow. We’re exhausted just thinking about it.

And what’s better? Everyone leaves a winner. Every kid that finishes will be presented with a medal on the podium. Imagine the look on your kid’s face when they take their medal into Show and Tell on Monday!

Post-run, it’s a celebration all round. Kids and families can soak up the atmosphere in the festival area and chill out with a drink and a bite to eat, while listening to cool tunes spun by the resident FOAM FEST DJ.
